British Transport Police (BTP) officers are investigating a complaint from an 18-year-old woman in relation to the incident on a train between Northfleet and London Bridge.

Andy Parkinson, of BTP's Public Protection Unit, has made a renewed appeal for information regarding the incident on March 21.

He said: "The female was sitting by herself onboard the train, when she was approached by a male who attempted to engage her in conversation.

"He then exposed himself and proceeded to commit a lewd act on himself in front of her."

He is described as European in appearance, around 30-years-old, medium build and was wearing a shirt, light zip-up style jacket and carrying a black lap-top style bag.

It is believed that he may have connections with the Crayford and Lewisham areas.
